Safe Driver Agreement

It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle in a road or road zone without a current driver`s license for this category of vehicles. The safer driver`s contract is valid for the duration of your temporary driver`s licence. If you opt for a safer driver`s contract and then violate your driver`s licence conditions or re-accumulate four or more demerite points: if you are entitled to enter into a safer driving contract, this will be mentioned in your communication. If you accept the agreement for a safer driver, you must notify the Registrar of Motor Vehicles within 21 days of the disqualification being issued at a post office or within 28 days with an SA Service. The safer driving agreement allows you to continue driving, but if you are disqualified again, the disqualification increases to twelve months without the right to appeal. Provisional driver`s licence holders who have been disqualified may opt for an agreement on safer drivers instead of serving the six-month disqualification period [Motor Vehicles Act 1959 (SA) s 81BA]. The agreement applies for the duration of the provisional licence. Once you have successfully completed your call, you cannot re-appeal or enter into a safer driver contract for a new five-year term. If a provisional driver violates his driver`s licence conditions or accumulates four or more points, he may choose to enter into an agreement on safer drivers instead of the six-month disqualification period, unless it is a serious disqualification obligation. Under the Alcohol-Interlock scheme, drivers are responsible for all costs associated with the installation, maintenance and maintenance of the locking device.

A provisional driver, disqualified for a serious offence of disqualification, may refer the matter to the Court of Justice for « serious and unusual difficulties ». The driver`s driving history is taken into account. If you are not eligible for a safer driving agreement, you can appeal the disqualification provided by the Motor Vehicle Act s 81BB. On your disqualification, he will tell you if you have the right to appeal. If a driver then violates his driver`s licence requirements or again accumulates 4 or more demerite points.
